2:1 五旬节到了,门徒都聚集在一处。

And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.

2:2 忽然从天上有响声下来,好像一阵大风吹过,充满了他们所坐的屋子。

And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.

2:3 又有舌头如火焰显现出来,分开落在他们各人头上。

And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.

2:4 他们就都被圣灵充满,按着圣灵所赐的口才,说起别国的话来。

And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

2:5 那时,有虔诚的犹太人,从天下各国来,住在耶路撒冷。

And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.

2:6 这声音一响,众人都来聚集,各人听见门徒用众人的乡谈说话,就甚纳闷。

Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.

2:7 都惊讶希奇说,看哪,这说话的不都是加利利人吗。

And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans?

2:8 我们各人,怎样听见他们说我们生来所用的乡谈呢。

And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born?

2:9 我们帕提亚人,玛代人,以拦人,和住在美索不达米亚,犹太,加帕多家,本都,亚细亚,

Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia,

2:10 弗吕家,旁非利亚,埃及的人,并靠近古利奈的利比亚一带地方的人,从罗马来的客旅中,或是犹太人,或是进犹太教的人,

Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes,

2:11 克里特和阿拉伯人,都听见他们用我们的乡谈,讲说神的大能作为。

Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.

2:12 众人就都惊讶猜疑,彼此说,这是什么意思呢。

And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another, What meaneth this?

2:13 还有人讥诮说,他们无非是新酒灌满了。

Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine.

2:14 彼得和十一个使徒,站起,高声说,犹太人,和一切住在耶路撒冷的人哪,这些事你们当知道,也当侧耳听我的话。

But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words:

2:15 你们想这些人是醉了,其实不是醉了,因为时候刚到巳初。

For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day.

2:16 这正是先知约珥所说的。神说,在末后的日子,我要将我的灵浇灌凡有血气的。

But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;

2:17 神说,在末后的日子,我要将我的灵浇灌凡有血气的。你们的儿女要说预言。你们的少年人要见异象。老年人要作异梦。

And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:

2:18 在那些日子,我要将我的灵浇灌我的仆人和使女,他们就要说预言。

And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:

2:19 在天上我要显出奇事,在地下我要显出神迹,有血,有火,有烟雾。

And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:

2:20 日头要变为黑暗,月亮要变为血,这都在主大而明显的日子未到以前。徒02:20)日头要变为黑暗,月亮要变为血,这都在主大而明显的日子未到以前。

The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:

2:21 到那时候,凡求告主名的,就必得救。

And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

2:22 以色列人哪,请听我的话。神藉着拿撒勒人耶稣,在你们中间施行异能,奇事,神迹,将他证明出来,这是你们自己知道的。

Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:

2:23 他既按着神的定旨先见,被交与人,你们就藉着无法之人的手,把他钉在十字架上杀了。

Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain:

2:24 神却将死的痛苦解释了,叫他复活。因为他原不能被死拘禁。

Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it.

2:25 大卫指着他说,我看见主常在我眼前,他在我右边,叫我不至于摇动。

For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved:

2:26 所以我心里欢喜,我的灵(原文作舌)快乐。并且我的肉身要安居在指望中。

Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope:

2:27 因你必不将我的灵魂撇在阴间,也不叫你的圣者见朽坏。

Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

2:28 你已将生命的道路指示我,必叫我因见你的面,(或作叫我在你面前)得着满足的快乐。

Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.

2:29 弟兄们,先祖大卫的事,我可以明明的对你们说,他死了,也葬埋了,并且他的坟墓,直到今日还在我们这里。

Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day.

2:30 大卫既是先知,又晓得神曾向他起誓,要从他的后裔中,立一位坐在他宝座上。

Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;

2:31 就豫先看明这事,讲论基督复活说,他的灵魂,不撇在阴间,他的肉身,也不见朽坏。

He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption.

2:32 这耶稣,神已经叫他复活了,我们都为这事作见证。

This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses.

2:33 他既被神的右手高举,(或作他既高举在神的右边)又从父受了所应许的圣灵,就把你们所看见所听见的,浇灌下来。

Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.

2:34 大卫并没有升到天上,但自己说,主对我说,你坐在我的右边,

For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself, The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,

2:35 等我使你仇敌作你的脚凳。

Until I make thy foes thy footstool.

2:36 故此,以色列全家当确实的知道,你们钉在十字架上的这位耶稣,神已经立他为主为基督了。

Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.

2:37 众人听见这话,觉得扎心,就对彼得和其馀的使徒说,弟兄们,我们当怎样行。

Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?

2:38 彼得说,你们各人要悔改,奉耶稣基督的名受洗,叫你们的罪得赦,就必领受所赐的圣灵。

Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

2:39 因为这应许是给你们,和你们的儿女,并一切在远方的人,就是主我们神所召来的。

For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the LORD our God shall call.

2:40 彼得还用许多话作见证,劝勉他们说,你们当救自己脱离这弯曲的世代。

And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation.

2:41 于是领受他们的人,就受了洗,那一天,门徒约添了三千人。

Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.

2:42 都恒心遵守使徒的教训,彼此交接,擘饼,祈祷。

And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

2:43 众人都惧怕。使徒又行了许多奇事神迹。

And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles.

2:44 信的人都在一处,凡物公用。

And all that believed were together, and had all things common;

2:45 并且卖了田产家业,照各人所需用的分给各人。

And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need.

2:46 他们天天同心合意,恒切的在殿里且在家中擘饼,存着欢喜诚实的心用饭,

And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,

2:47 赞美神,得众民的喜爱。主将得救的人,天天加给他们。

Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.

使徒行传2参考

你知道圣灵已经降临了,在一个你很熟悉的节日,是了……
2:1 五旬节在逾越节后五十天,又名七七节,是为著农作物丰收而献上感谢的节日,也是每年三大节期之一(参申16:16)。耶稣在逾越节被钉十字架,并在四十天后升天,圣灵在耶稣复活后五十天降临(即耶稣升天后十天)。

火焰似舌,舌头与火所指为何?如果神启示我的时候,也如此壮观就好了……
2:3 为甚么是舌头似的火焰呢?舌头象徵言语和福音的传播;火象徵神圣洁的同在,除去我们生命中的杂质,使我们的心火热起来,也激发人去改变生命。神以蔚为壮观的方法来向信徒显明他的同在,就是通过狂风、火焰和圣灵向他们显现。你希望神以这种明显的方法来向你显现吗?他可能会这样做,但小心不要强求神成就你的期望。在列王纪上19章11至13节,以利亚等候神的信息,虽然有烈风、地震和火焰,可是神的信息却来自一个“微小的声音”。神也许会用戏剧性的方法在你的生命中工作,又或许他会用微小的声音来向你说话。你要耐心等候,常常聆听。

明明用尽方法,他们总不明白,真气死人──传福音常是如此?
2:4-11 门徒说起别国的话来!这真叫聚集在城里过节的人惊叹不绝。不同国籍的人都听出门徒在说他们本地的语言。你看,神是多么体谅怜爱,用他们听得懂的乡谈,述说神的大能。下次你传福音,要体谅别人的背景,用他们听得懂的比喻、思维方式和生活经验解释福音的内容。

想到海外宣教?其实不用到海外也可以面对不同种族的人──
2:9-11 这里列出了来自各地的犹太人到耶路撒冷过节。由于被掳和迫害,这些犹太人被分散到世界各处。那些接受彼得信息的犹太人,把神救恩的福音带回自己的家乡去,这样,神就预备了传扬福音的道路。你可能没有领受到海外作宣教士的使命,但要留心神把许多不同种族、不同背景的人带到你身边,让你向他们传福音;有一天他们要把福音带回家乡或是他们所属的社会群体中,达到福音广传的目标。

为何主会使用那个不认主的人?那他会用这个多次令他伤心的我吗?
2:14-15 与耶稣在一起的时候,彼得是一个不稳定的领袖,他逞一时之勇,最终跌倒,甚至否认他所认识的耶稣(参约18:15-18, 25-27)。但耶稣赦免他,并且使他复兴(参约21章)。这是一个新造的彼得,谦卑而勇敢。他的信心来自圣灵,圣灵使他成为一个充满能力的演说家。你曾否以为若你犯了错,神就永不会赦免你、使用你呢?无论你犯了甚么罪,神都应许要赦免你,叫你成为合用的人。
你看耶稣被害是偶然吗?你看耶稣不再掌权吗?如果耶稣真的不再掌权……
2:23 耶稣所遭遇的每一件事,都是在神的掌管之内,他的计划并没有被罗马政府或犹太官员所破坏。对于要面对逼迫的初期教会信徒,这个信息特别能够安慰他们。

耶稣果真复活了?彼得这样说不怕吗?我想你也会有此勇气的 ……
2:24 彼得趁有许多人可以作证的机会,公开宣告耶稣的复活。这是一个相当有力的声明,因为听彼得说话的人中,有许多在五十日前已在耶路撒冷过逾越节,他们也许曾经看过或听过关于这位“伟大的老师”被钉十字架的事。耶稣复活是最有力的明证,证明他所说的是真的。

在那远古的年代,大卫的时代,早已说明,说甚么?彼得已告诉了你……
2:25-32 彼得引用大卫的诗篇第16篇8至11节,他指出这是预言弥赛亚复活。听众会明白“见朽坏”(2:27)是指坟墓,这是强调耶稣的身体没有朽坏,事实上他复活了,并得著荣耀。

“我们当怎样行呢?”──你有没有问过这问题?或只是在为自己的罪难过?
2:37-39 那些人听过彼得那些被圣灵充满的信息后深受感动,他们问:“我们当怎样行呢?”这是你必须问的基本问题,单单为罪而难过是不够的──你必须求神赦免;然后,必须活出蒙赦免的生命。神曾否藉著他的圣言或其他信徒来提醒你呢?你会怎样回答呢?如果你想跟随基督,你必须“离开”罪恶,改变生命的方向,不再自私和背叛神的律法。同时,你必须“转向”基督,倚靠他,寻求他的赦免、怜悯、引导和旨意。洗礼显明我们与基督和教会的关系,是作门徒的条件和一个信心的标志。当我们悔改时,神不单抹去我们的罪,更赐我们灵里的更新。悔改初时看来似乎是痛苦的,因为要放弃某些恶行是很困难的,但神会给你一条更美好的路。

信主而已,怎么要做那么多东西?我可不愿意……
2:40-43 当彼得宣讲关于基督的福音时,约有三千人成为信徒。这些初信者与其他信徒联合,接受使徒的教导,参加祈祷会,建立相交的生活。信徒需要聚在一起,同心祈祷、读经,使灵命成长。如果你是刚开始和基督建立关系,就应当与其他信徒彼此相交、祈祷、分享主的恩典。这是成长的途径。

“擘饼”这个词有点熟悉,又有点陌生,究竟为何我们要这样做?
2:42 “擘饼”指圣餐聚会,为的是记念耶稣,是按照耶稣与门徒吃“最后晚餐”的样式进行的(参太26:26-29)。

“凡物公用”好像是一个很陌生的概念,我们纵不这样行,也可以……
2:44-45 耶路撒冷的基督徒承认其他信徒为神家里的弟兄姊妹,所以愿意分享自己所有的,让所有人都能得著神的赐福。当我们物质丰裕时,就很容易与他人疏远,只顾自己的利益,满足自己,自我享受。然而,我们身为神属灵家庭里的一分子,有责任努力帮助别人。

敬拜同心,生活互爱,温暖人间此中寻,这是耶路撒冷的教会;我,好向往……
2:47 一个健全的基督徒团体能够吸引人到基督那里。耶路撒冷教会虔诚的敬拜以及弟兄姊妹之间的爱具有极大的感染力。一个健全而充满爱心的教会一定会增长,你在教会中正在做些甚么,使她能吸引人到基督那里呢?
